2023.05.28 05:10 BrownTown427 Inside The Doctor's Office - Episode X: The Impurity Of Decision Making

In the last episode, we saw Dr. Logan Wright meet quite the colorful cast of individuals. From WWE superstar Logan Paul to the beautiful bird known as Logan Flight, the Symposium of the Logang was certainly a fascinating place to be. And now, with IWF superstar “Lumberjack” Logan Lawrence motivating him to stop being so passive, FBE’s Resident Doctor looks to be on the Wright path towards becoming the most focused man he can… without the distractions of his demons…

Blitz XX: Paddy Murphy vs. Dr. Logan Wright
We’ve reached the ten minute mark of this match, and after Paddy drills the Doctor with a To Cork and Back, he starts rising to his feet. However, from the outside, we hear Sensei trying to drill something into his student:

“Paddy-san… Rememberuhhh… Target the headuhhhh…”

With that last piece of advice resonating in his own head, Paddy starts getting ready for perhaps the final sequence of the match, a Give It Some Welly ready to be hit. However, Logan also happened to hear the wisdom from Sensei, dodging the big boot to the face. He gets behind Murphy, quickly dropping him with a Relax and Eat Some (German) Soup-lex. Instead of going for another move however, Wright’s gaze shifts to the outside. He exits the ring, staring a dagger through Sensei:

“Why exactly did you tell him to target my head?”

Sensei backs up a bit, but as he does so, a crumpled up piece of paper he was holding falls to the floor. He tries to pick it back up, but Wright beats him to it, revealing it to be…the stolen medical form from his office… the information regarding his head pains. Wright looks at the paper, a calm expression on his face initially, but slowly, he loses his cool. His hands ball up into fists, his face turns a bit red…and he mouths to Sensei:

“You shouldn’t have taken that.”

Wright gets back into the ring, and though Paddy has risen to his feet by this point, Logan drops him with the Whiplash sling blade. FBE’s Resident Doctor stares at his currently downed opponent, and realizes it’s time for a medical procedure…how about a Facial Reconstruction! Wright begins stomping on Paddy’s face, knocking him unconscious, before finally putting an end to the assault with the PDF Kamigoye.

Dr. Logan Wright def. Paddy Murphy via pinfall

As the ref raises Dr. Logan Wright’s hand, the crowd begins…booing? Wright looks around, confused at the negative reaction. I didn’t cheat, I just found a way to win the match. I didn’t do anything wrong… did I? As he heads into the backstage area, he’s quickly approached by a young-looking intern, a microphone in his hand:
Reporter: “Hello, my name is Ryan St. Brown, and I’m with the-”
Logan Wright: “Hang on, your last name is St. Brown? Are you related to Amon-Ra by chance?
Reporter: “No relation.”
Logan Wright: “That’s disappointing. But go ahead, ask your question.”
Reporter: “We just saw you pick up a strong victory over one of FBE’s fan favorites in Paddy Murphy. However, at the end of the match, you clearly looked more agitated than usual, and some would say you used more force than was needed to win-”
Logan Wright: “Are you one of the people saying that?”
Reporter: “Well, I…uh…”
Logan Wright: “Look, I like Paddy and Sensei. But at the same time, they took privileged medical information from me. Sure, maybe I shouldn’t have used that PDF at the end…but should I regret using one of my standard maneuvers to win a match? No, and I don’t. Next question.”
Reporter: “Ok, fair enough. You’re doing well in the Shining Light League right now, and I have to ask: if you were to win the whole thing, who would you challenge?
Logan Wright: “I don’t like dealing with hypotheticals. I much prefer diagnosing current problems with all the information at my disposal. So I’m not answering that.”
Reporter (muttering): “Man, you’re a lot more boring in person than I thought you would be. Your answers suck.”
This comment draws the ire of Wright, who moves closer towards the reporter.
Reporter: “What? Prove me wrong. Give me a message that’s actually worthwhile, and I’ll be more than happy to rescind that comment.”
Logan Wright: “I know you’re just looking for a soundbite to try and further your career, but you’ve got my attention. Ask away.”
Reporter: “Are you the best pure rules competitor in FBE?”
Logan Wright: “You’re damn right I am. They call Inferno Baba Blitz? They ought to call me Da-Da Blitz, because all these wrestlers gunning for my title… THEY’RE CHILDREN COMPARED TO ME!”
The reporter gives a sly smirk as he walks away, having gotten what he needed. Meanwhile, Wright finds a nearby chair to sit on, putting his head down. However, his moment of silence is soon interrupted by a familiar voice:
Jared Gallagher: “Weird night for you, eh?”
Wright looks up to see his once-cameraman and friend moving towards him. However, with the doctor’s tumultuous year, their relationship became more strained, not having spoken for a while…until now.
Logan Wright: “That’s one way of putting it.”
There’s a bit of an awkward silence for a few moments, as neither man initially wants to speak. Eventually though, Gallagher gains his composure:
Jared Gallagher: “Look, I know you probably don’t wanna speak to me-”
Logan Wright: “Then maybe you should stop talking.”
Jared Gallagher: “Ok fine, but let me ask you something first: what were you doing with that last remark to the reporter? It wasn’t as cool as it likely sounded in your head.”
Logan Wright: “I was doing a play on words, what’s confusing about it?”
Jared Gallagher: “Yeah, but you do realize “Baba” translates to “father” too? So instead of being clever, you were essentially just rehashing Inferno’s nickname.”
Logan Wright: “Fuck.”
Jared Gallagher: “Forget about that though, I wanted to talk to you about something else. I heard from a little birdie that you were taking advice from Logan Lawrence.”
Logan Wright: “Logan Flight ratted on me? I knew he couldn’t be trusted.”
Jared Gallagher: “That’s not the birdie I meant…you know what, forget it. I just want you to understand that being overly aggressive isn’t the key to success. You’ve already been good up to this point, don’t lose your true self by being more of a jackass.”
Logan Wright: “Yeah, being good is fine…but I don’t wanna just be “good” anymore. I wanna be great. I want to prove myself as the pillar of something, and pure rules is the best chance I have at that. But relax, I don’t wanna just be an asshole for the sake of being one either.”
Jared Gallagher: “Ok, that’s fine. But if you want to improve… What's your next move? Gonna do some training with the rest of the Ark? Maybe ask your medical colleagues for some more dieting tips?
Logan briefly thinks about the suggestions, before he remembers something that Sensei told him…
Logan Wright: “No, I have a better idea… I’m going to Nepal.”
And with that, Dr. Wright starts heading towards the exit, a smile on his face, while Jared Gallagher is just left confused. He never even said why he was going there, what in the world is he doing…

One Week Before Unbreakable V: Kathmandu, Nepal
After a long trip, Logan Wright has finally made it into the heart of the Himalayan Mountains. He gets out of the car, paying and thanking the driver who escorted him from the airport to get to this point. He reaches into his pocket, grabbing the “business” card that led him to this location. He stares at it for a few moments, glancing up and down to make sure he’s in the right place. Yep, this is the one…
In front of Dr. Wright stands a worn-down house. It's small, with what looks to be only one story, and the white color is wearing away like the wooden beams supporting it. There’s a window near the front door, but a set of blinds are covering it up. As Logan approaches the entry-way, he smells a distinct odor of soup. Taking a breath, he knocks on the door. As he does so, a crash of glass can be heard on the other side, and there’s some momentary yelling before a tired-looking individual opens the door.
???: “May I help you?”
Logan Wright: “Hello, my name is Logan Wright. I’ve been informed that an incredibly wise teacher of medicine and healing resides here…”
???: “You’re correct, but he’s not seeing anyone today. Come back another time…”
Logan Wright: “Wait, I really need this. And I think I know one of his friends, they pointed this place out to me.”
???: “What’s the name of this friend?”
Logan Wright: “He’s known as Sensei-”
This yelling from inside the house startles Wright, and the man at the doorway sighs, motioning for Logan to come in. As the doctor does so, he glances around the house, immediately noticing the kitchen area. Sitting at a table there is an older gentleman, with a pair of glasses on and a cane at his side, Logan quickly realizing he’s blind. The man from the doorway points for Logan to sit down with him, and Wright obliges, positioning himself in the chair next to the old individual.
Logan Wright: “Hello sir, it’s a pleasure to meet-”
Wright briefly cringes at the yelling of the individual, looking back with a confused look on his face to the figure near the door. He notices a nametag on the figure he hadn’t seen before, reading “Bibek”.
Bibek: “Yeah, don’t worry about that. He’s blind and almost deaf, he needs to speak loudly to make himself sure he’s actually talking. Oh, and he said, “Hello, it is very nice to meet you. My name is Blogan Bite.”
Logan Wright: “Wait, why are you translating for him? He’s speaking directly to me, I know what he’s saying.”
Bibek: “Oh, just so the readers of this episode actually have a clue as to what’s going on.”
Logan Wright: “Wait what readers… oh, we’re doing another fourth wall break, gotcha.”
Blogan Bite: “Y HOV U CUHMM HEAR?”
Bibek: (“Why have you come here?”)
Logan Wright: “I’m looking for some advice. For a while now, I’ve felt an inner conflict in my emotional state and my moral compass. I want to be more aggressive, to try and be the best…but I don’t want to abandon the roots of my existence that helped shape me into who I am. Do you have any advice?”
Bibek: (“Hmmm… A tough problem indeed.”)
Suddenly, Blogan reaches towards his side, reaching into a bag. He shakes it around for a bit, before pulling out something from inside. He triumphantly slams it onto the table, before pushing it towards Dr. Wright. Logan looks at it for a few moments, an incredulous look on his face.
Logan Wright: “Why exactly are you… what is… what do you expect me to do with a copy of Fire and Ice by Robert Frost?
Bibek: (“He is a great poet. Take inspiration from him.”)
Logan Wright: “So… let me get this straight: your solution to my problem is…writing fucking poetry?
Bibek: (“Watch your language young man. Poetry is a beautiful thing.”)
Logan Wright: “Yeah but…surely there’s something that’s more suitable for my situation?”
Bibek: (“I am afraid not. The bag has spoken.”)
Logan Wright: “Wait, do you just reach in the bag and randomly pull out an object for everyone that comes in?”
Bibek: (“Of course. What else would I do?”)
Logan Wright: “Ok, I think we’re done here. Thank you for this… attempt at a recommendation. You’re truly one of the people I’ve ever met.”
As Logan gets up, Blogan extends a hand. Reluctantly, Wright shakes it, before heading to the doorway, acknowledging Bibek, and leaving the worn-down house. As he heads towards the street, he’s just left to ponder what transpired. That was dumb… traveling thousands of miles instead of just doing training was rather pointless. But as he gets in the car, ready to go back to the airport, another set of thoughts come over him. You know what…maybe I can make the best out of this situation…maybe writing poetry actually can do me some good…

Day Before Unbreakable V: Dr. Wright’s Office
With just 24 hours until Unbreakable, Jared Gallagher and Charles Crandall figure Wright is busy with training, or if nothing else, his medical work. However, they’re surprised to receive an invite to his office, and though Gallagher tries to ask him what it’s about, he gets no answer. It frustrates him, but he figures it must be important, so after grabbing a quick bite with Charles, they head over to the office. By this point in time, Crandall is fairly quiet, his eyes becoming increasingly purple for longer periods of time and Wrogan slowly and quietly influencing his personality, but the time to reveal that isn’t here…yet.
When they reach the hall outside the office, they’re surprised to see Logan standing in the doorway, a smile on his face. He invites them in, even having an assortment of pastries and desserts on the table for his friends to snack on. While Jared is quick to grab a danish, he’s also quick to raise eyebrows at this behavior.
Jared Gallagher: “Logan, what is all this for? This feels…too nice…
Logan Wright: “What, a man can’t just happen to invite his friends over for some delicious treats?”
Jared Gallagher: “You’re not fooling anyone man, just tell us why we’re here.”
Logan Wright: “Ok fine, you got me. The reason you’re here today… I wanted you to be the first screenings of my first-ever poem!”
Though Crandall is wearing sunglasses, he and Gallagher are quick to shoot each other a glance of confusion.
Jared Gallagher: “What?”
Logan Wright: “That’s right, when I went to Nepal, the man I met recommended I write poetry to ease my tensions and help me become a better person. I thought he was insane, but as I started to write, I realized…he may be right!
Jared Gallagher: “That’s…but…I’m so confused. You didn’t even get any real training or medicinal techniques? You just got…told to write? What even is your topic?”
Logan Wright: “I’m glad you asked, old chum! I’ve entitled this poem…

An Ode To Jay…

In the garden lived a bird
Who truly loved to sing
It was a beautiful mockingjay
And through the air, its voice did ring

The bird was beloved
And believed to be a Hero
But little did the world know
Of its painful little ego

This bird fought and fought
It did everything to grow
But when abandoned by friends
It was a true low blow

Once upon a time, the group was
United, and forever in-sync
But when the Jay hit the bottle
Oh, did their PROSPECTS ever so sink

And the bird has recovered
It has regained its feathers
But little does the jay know
Of the impending, harsh weathers

For the jay may spread its wings
And fly in the dark
But it doesn’t know
Of its impending, dangerous arc

This bird will fly, and
It truly wants to win
But the true challenge is here
For the Doctor is in!

As Wright finishes his last line, his theatrical reading of the lines now finished, he finally turns towards his faithful audience. He’s met with a blank look from Charles Crandall, the sunglasses still firmly covering his eyes. And Jared… his mouth is agape, trying to process what he just heard.
Logan Wright: “So… what did you think?”
Jared Gallagher: “I… what… how… why… I don’t know what to say.”
Logan Wright: “You can show your appreciation by clapping, I worked really hard on that.”
Jared Gallagher: “I could… but let me get this straight… This is how you’re handling your upcoming rematch with Jay? Making a poem that only we’ve listened to, and not trying to find a way to, I don’t know, not finish the match in a time-limit draw?”
Logan Wright: “Forget about that, tell me if I should improve the language I used and how the poem flowed together. I could probably stand to write a poem for the tag team title match as well.”
Jared Gallagher: “Logan, Logan, Logan… Ok, if you want to live in this strange world of yours, go ahead. The poem was fine, but you weren’t exactly subtle with it, especially at the end. Like I get you want to beat Jay, and I know you were mad with what he said about you in the past…but really, finishing the entire thing about the Doctor being in? That doesn’t even make sense with the vibe you established.”
Logan Wright: “Fair critique, I’ll keep that in mind when I continue writing these.”
Jared Gallagher: “Come on man, it’s cool that you have a hobby, but I know just how much you cared about wrestling. Please, just step away from the paper and train while you still have a little bit of time left before tomorrow. I know we’re not as close as we once were…but if nothing else, do it for the rest of the Ark. Do it out of spite against Wrogan. Do it to prove that you’re not completely crazy, and that you deserve to be where you are in life.”
It’s with this line that something seems to click in Logan’s head. He looks towards Jared, nodding his head, and he moves towards his desk. He stares at all the notes and rough drafts he had been working on for his writings, a frown coming over his face.
Logan Wright: “I wish I was normal… I wish I didn’t go through these personality changes every other day. You’re right Jared…You’ve always been right. Wrestling needs to come first, and I have everything I need to stay energized. I don’t want to be passive, I don’t want to be aggressive…I just want to live. And tomorrow…things are going to get fun.
Gallagher smiles at Wright being reinvigorated, and the pair share a quick hug. Upon Jared and Charles leaving, Dr. Wright takes a quick look in his mirror, and smiles at the expression of confidence now piercing through his eyes. He grabs his coat, turns off the light, and so begins a long and tedious night at the gym…

Night of Death Before Impurity:

Pre-Match Process

The Finals are here… and Logan Wright is in them. After weeks leading-into months of this Shining Light League Tournament running center-stage on Blitz, the Doctor has gotten to where he wanted to be…where he needed to be. As he sits in the locker room, getting himself mentally prepared for the tall task that comes with facing DTJ’s Hunter Maguire, he sees in his peripheral vision someone entering the room. He glances up, smiling to see Jared coming to visit.
Jared Gallagher: “Hey champ, how we feeling about tonight?”
Logan Wright: “Whatever happens tonight…well, what I know will happen tonight… is PURE-ly destiny.”
Jared Gallagher: “Not your best joke, but glad to see you’ve been in positive spirits recently.”
Logan Wright: “Yep, tonight has to be the moment where everything pays off…it just has to…”
Jared Gallagher: “It will… I believe in you. And if you don’t mind me asking…who would you want to face at P.U.R.E. if things go your way?
Logan Wright: “You know I can’t answer that right now, I have to get the job done first.”
Jared Gallagher: “Fair enough, fair enough. I should be heading off…go get em’, champ.
With that, Gallagher leaves the room, and Wright rises to his feet. He looks at his arms, then his legs, then finds the mirror. He stares into his soul…Come on out Doctor…It’s operation time…

Post-Match Press Conference

Dr. Logan Wright did it.
As he’s now backstage, being greeted with a bottle of champagne that was ordered for him, Logan is still trying to ponder what just took place out there. From the match itself… to the seconds after the match realizing he won… to the return of the legend Petite Jupiter, handing him the trophy…
It’s all absolutely surreal, and Logan is at a loss for words. However, as he gets word that reporters are waiting to get a word from him, he quickly gathers his composure. He takes a big swig from the champagne bottle, before heading into the room, waving to the assortment of familiar and different faces. He moves towards the stage, taking a seat and getting the mic setup, ready to hear questions.
Reporter #1: “That was a hell of a match you had, Dr. Wright. What’s going through your head right now?”
Logan Wright: “Honestly, half of it is just my brain screaming and the other half is random gibberish. I can’t fully process either, but when I feel this way… I’m fucking pumped. But I do wanna quickly say… I respect you Hunter, I really do. You’ve been a tough opponent twice now… but that’s all the positives I can really say right now. Fuck DTJ.”
Reporter #2: “We just witnessed the return of Petite Jupiter, and the fans certainly loved it. But what did you think about it? Did you feel as though he was stealing your thunder by returning immediately after your big moment?”
Logan Wright: “Look, I know you’re looking for a soundbite, and I caved in several weeks ago to that one reporter. I’m not gonna do that here though. I faced Petite Jupiter in 2021, and I know just how good he is. He deserved to get that electric crowd reaction, and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to hand me the beautiful Shining Light League trophy.”
Reporter #3: “But now Dr. Wright, I think we all have a question on our minds. In addition to that trophy, you have the chance to pick your challenger for P.U.R.E, and that’s a lot of power. So if you can tell us…who are you gonna be facing?
Logan smiles at the question, fully expecting it to have been asked. He glances around the room, noticing Kaze Tanaka, Code Blue, Cactus Mike, and Jared Gallagher all standing at the back. He nods at them, before getting the mic, ready to make the announcement:

Logan Wright:
“In my time in FBE, there have been times where I’ve felt…insecure. Insecure about my talent, insecure about if people actually liked me or not, and insecure about my failures especially. But 2023… let’s just say it’s been a great Spring of Stethoscopes so far. You all know I’ve held the Pure Championship for about four months now, and I’ve faced my fair share of great individuals. But this second title run… it’s missing something. My past, in particular my 2021, was riddled with failures against veterans of this company. Losses to Inferno, to Nate Matthews, to Petite Jupiter… wins were hard to come by. I turned things around in 2022, but even then, my 1st Pure Title reign came to an end at the hands of FBE’s Resident Bastard. It feels like it’s just inevitable, and a running gag…
…But nowadays, I look at myself differently. Other people look at me differently. I’ve grown into what I wanted to be, what I hoped I would be… hell, I’ve even been dubbed as being somewhat of a “Final Boss.” I don’t want to get too egotistical, but not having lost since January… man, the ship I’m on, that being the Ark of course, is on a perfect path. But sometimes, it’s better to go for a different path, a path that stands out…to maybe make history…
So with that, this decision has drifted in my mind, and I’ve weighed all my options carefully. I’ve considered juniors and heavyweights. I’ve considered people from my past or completely fresh opponents. I’ve considered people who would die to win the Pure Championship, or even those who have disrespected it, to show them what it’s all about. But after a while, something finally clicked in my head. I’ve tried to forget that previously mentioned “can never beat a veteran legend” stigma, but until I get a decisive win, it’ll always float right alongside the ocean that contains my thoughts and dreams. So I will be challenging a long-time competitor of FBE, a man who has wrestled here for many years…
But the question of who was certainly a fascinating one…for about a minute. For once this name came to me, it never escaped. This man has held his share of championship gold, This man knows a thing or two about being dubbed a “Final Boss.” And this man has quite the past experience against the Ark… except with me. And to this man, I officially extend the challenge…if he's willing to accept it...

The stage is set…the main event of P.U.R.E…for the FBE Pure Championship…The match you reporters and all the worldwide fans of FBE will get to witness is…

2023.05.27 22:30 KyleKKent Out of Cruel Space, Part 695

Capes and Conundrums
“Thank you for seeing me. I am Doctor Malaise. Psychologist and Family Councillor.” She says shaking the hand of the defeated looking Yauya man that looks like he’s been through a small war. “Before we begin, do understand that your son is in good health and currently being kept busy. He earned some money as a civilian contractor as well, and has used a portion of it to hire me to help sort out this situation.”
“Good afternoon ma’am. Are really... yes it would be that bad with Albin and his sisters. With Albin and me... Sweet Ancestors what a mess.” Thalison Shadow says with a sigh. He and Albin’s mother are sitting front and center with the other mothers in the room observing. The blood mother and father having priority in who’s part of this meeting.
“Don’t think of me as an authority, think of me as a neutral party and sympathetic ear. Yes, your son is who hired me for this, however my ultimate goal is to bring some level of peace and understanding among your family. Which means I’ll be speaking to your daughters after you and I’ve already spoken to your son. Understand?”
“I do.”
“Do you also understand that I am not a lawyer and am not offering advise on the legal end of things?”
“Very good. Now then, in your own words, please describe this situation as you understand it.” Doctor Malaise prompts and Thalison nods.
“Right well... I suppose this was coming, or something like this was coming for years now. Albin is... well... when he was smaller he was a sickly little boy. He just never had an appetite and never really had the energy of his sisters either older or younger. We did the responsible thing and kept him inside and ensured he had high nutrition food to sustain him despite the fact he’d usually only nibble at his meals.”
“Your son didn’t mention being sickly growing up.”
“We made a point of not letting him know. We treated him like he was normal, like there was nothing wrong and he would be fine. Because he would. What he had was Gurana’s Syndrome. The family is somewhat prone to it, the disorder shows up at least once a generation.”
“For the sake of clarity could you explain Gurana’s Syndrome?” Doctor Malaise asks.
“In essence your child has a very small appetite and low energy. It’s not a deformity, an injury or any normal sickness so a healing coma can’t just wipe it away. It’s a developmental disorder that nearly always clears away when you hit puberty. It’s based in your Axiom Profile. It gives you the sensation of being fed, but it’s very inefficient at it. So long as the child in question is properly fed despite the small appetite and low Axiom intake they will eventually sort themselves out. Some earlier, some later, but never later than puberty. For Albin, three years ago he went to bed tired, barely able to get a few nibbles down, and woke up the next morning bursting with energy, ravenous and much, much stronger.”
“That must have been a relief.”
“Like you wouldn’t believe. Seeing him reach to refill his bowl at breakfast brought a small cheer to the family.”
“When did he start drifting away from the family? This tension has been building for a while and it had to start somewhere.”
“I was getting to that. Now... you understand Yauya have a strong hunting culture right? I’m a Homebody, but I’ve gone out and speared beings three times my size with sharpened sticks to drag the corpse home for a meal over an open fire. I’ve done it in celebration for each of my sons and daughters, I go and get their mother a big feast to enjoy. However... when we took Albin hunting. Something went wrong.”
“Do you know what happened exactly?” Doctor Malaise asks and Thalison sighs as he rubs his eyes.
“Yes, he wasn’t as aware as he should have been on his first hunt and the prey got very close to him. His mother saved him. Speared the beast right through the heart. But it had already pounced and it was close enough for some of the blood to land on him in that first hunt.”
“That sounds fairly traumatizing.” She says and Thalison just sighs as Albin’s mother gives his hand a squeeze.
“It was bad. We hadn’t meant to, but while we had assured that he didn’t think of himself as strange, we did treat him very delicately when he was a child. So... yeah...” Azisa Shadow says and Thalison pats her on the knee.
“So that’s where his aversion to normal hunted started. But where does Beaky come into the picture?” Doctor Malaise asks.
“My daughters will periodically make a concentrated effort to get Albin to join them on a hunt. For a while it worked. But the last time it did was when they were hunting full grown Tharaso Wings. Cliff side and ocean hunters that make beautiful clothing and taste really good. But the last time it happened... Albin was separated from the main group. He was just really getting his mastery of the cloak at the time and was proving to be a very quick study. He faded out of sight, got distracted and left the main group.” Thalison explains and Doctor Malaise nods
“He then finds himself right near the nest as his sisters are scaring the birds into taking flight so they can be shot down. The girls succeed and he’s left there wondering if he should take a shot. Then he finds a large egg that’s shaking ever so slightly.” Azisa finishes and Doctor Malaise nods.
“And that moment must have been nothing short of pure magic to him.” Doctor Malaise notes.
“We never saw him happier.” Thalison says before sighing and leaning back. “And now it’s all gone to hell...”
“Why did you allow your daughters to bring his pet during the hunt. Surely you would know that the air outside the protective shields will cook and kill most living beings in moments.”
“I’m aware. As is the whole family. Unfortunately, Beaky wasn’t aware and he took off his shield generator. Apparently the little fellow didn’t like how it felt and was smart enough to take it off. Then it saw some prey and... well... you know the rest.”
“So you even had protective equipment for the animal to personally wear that would have saved it’s life if it hadn’t removed it?” Doctor Malaise asks.
“Yes and the little fellow was always much better behaved around Albin. The moment he would leave the room or leave line of sight Beaky would work at the straps and quickly take it off. Turn your back for five seconds and you’d hear a clatter as the shield generator hits the floor.” Azisa says and Doctor Malaise considers.
“Which would contribute to his issue with this. With Beaky waiting for him to leave before acting out and removing the shield generator only when he was gone he wouldn’t think it was an issue.” Doctor Malaise notes and Azisa nods.
“Yes, he never really clicked with traditional hunting. He’s more content to study and understand the animals which is why he normally sits things out. Which infuriates his sisters as they want to be with him but what he wants to do bores them to tears.”
“So in conclusion, your son, who was very low energy growing up recovered but had a poor introduction to hunting giving him a distaste for it. His sisters have been trying to get him interested in in the traditional Yauya pass time and in the process he came across a hatching Tharaso Wing which he promptly tamed.”
“Yes, we also helped him register and inoculate Beaky.” Thalison says and Doctor Malaise nods.
“His taming while complete enough that no one felt threatened by the animal wasn’t fully complete so the animal had the tendency to remove ornamentation. Such as the Shield Generator that you got to ensure the animal wouldn’t burn in the local atmosphere.” She continues.
They nod.
“Finally, the taming was so good that the bird would only act out when Albin left the room. Right?”
“Would his sisters often try to use Beaky in order to get Albin to come hunting?”
“It did happen more than once. But Beaky was never hurt and Albin always went with them, coming home in good spirits and teasing his sisters. This time he refused and...”
“What was so different about this time that Albin refused?”
“I think he just really doesn’t like the city. But after they came back with Beaky dead...” Thalison begins
“He doesn’t want to come back.” Azisa says. “We signed that form so it would let us know where he is, and if he’s doing something then he’s not thinking about... other things.”
“As I said before this meeting truly started, your son is being kept busy. He has adult supervision at all times and is being observed by an outside party with emergency services on speed dial if anything happens.” Doctor Malaise says.
“I know it’s just... how do we come back from this? Albin seemed to drift apart and away from the family the closer we tried to hold him and if this doesn’t put up a wall between us I’ll be shocked.” Thalison asks.
“First off, there’s no deflecting blame. You can clarify things with Albin, but if you don’t accept your part of the blame for this terrible accident then he’s going to back away from you.” Doctor Malaise says. “Your fault is in allowing things to happen. Which means that you need to understand just what your daughters actually intended and also understand how Albin would have seen it.”
The parents nod.
“Good, now the last thing I need to know is why you brought the family here for a vacation? I understand if it’s something for most of the family. But it’s a bad fit for Albin.”
“Not as much as you think. While the hunting prize is in the trenches and the capital city here is based around it. There’s also easy access to the plains and fertile valleys beyond. They’re apparently teeming with small life and I assumed it would be an amazing place for Albin to take Beaky flying and hunting. It was what we were planning to do later today.” Thalison explains and Doctor Malaise actualyl smirks.
“That would have worked out very well actually. Some of the local wildlife are very fast and very agile. They could have had the two of them chasing Little Leapers for hours and having all kinds of fun.” Doctor Malaise says with a smile
“Well, ten seconds of inattention and that’s thoroughly not going to happen.” Thalison says with a groan. “Is there anything else you need?”
“Not unless you think there’s more you need to tell me. Although I would like to speak with your daughters next.” Doctor Malaise says and he nods.
“Right. I’ll go get them then.” He says standing up. “Be honest with my Doctor. Can we recover from this?”
“It will take work, and you will need to learn to communicate better. But yes.”
“Any recommendations?” Thalison asks.
“Go out with the deliberate intention of getting him another Tharaso Wing. Then help him raise the next one. Be part of it. Share it. Animal taming is clearly something that Albin values and treasures. Be part of it. Have your daughters be part of it. Don’t just let him do it or tell him you approve. Be part of it. Praise him for it. Let him understand that his skills and talents have value and you value them and him with them. And get your daughters on board with this. It will take some time, but it will heal the wound and you should be closer than before.”
“I hope so. ... Do you think he’ll choose a better name than Beaky this time?”
“Even if the name is as silly as Beaky Junior or even less dignified, use it and allow it. Your son has dreams and talents that have been thoroughly disrespected even if only by accident. It takes respect to heal disrespect.” Doctor Malaise says and there are more nods from the parents. “Now, when it comes to the other siblings, I need to know which ones were most involved in this event. Who was there when Beaky died?”
“I’ll go get them. I assume you want to speak with the ones who took Beaky first and separate before speaking to the others?”
“That will be just fine.”
“I and their mothers will be in the room as you speak with them.” Thalison notes.
“Good, I don’t have to request you stay in the room with them then.” Doctor Malaise says and Thalison gives her an odd look.

2023.05.27 15:12 ActComplex4603 [Sauce] Manhwa's that are actually good as manhwas.

What the title says. I don't want a manhwa with 50+ chapters that's a drag to read because its LN is really good (Looking at you, TBATE).
I have encountered dozens of bad manhwa's but it hurts the most when a highly reccomemded manhwa turns out to be absolute garbage. It's fine if it has has slow start (10-15 chapters) but Idc if it gets good after 150+ chapters.
It dosen't have to be an intricate and well designed plot with godly art, it only needs to be engaging.
Given below are some highly recommended manhwa that I didn't like as an example:
•TBATE •Academy's Undercover Professor •The World After the End •Trash of the Count's Family •Return of the 8th Class Magician •Reincarnation of the Sucidal Battle God
I don't mean to offend anyone with my takes but I just didn't connect with the story OR the characters. And for me to like a manhwa atleast one of the two is needed.
(I don't mind 'bad' art)
Thanks a lot!
Also! It can be ANY genre, I read them all!
EDIT: these are some manhwa's that I DID like!
•The survival story of a sword king in a fantasy world •ORV •The greatest estate developer •PTJ works (all of them) •Get schooled •I Shall Live as a Prince •SSS class Sucide Hunter •SL •Peerless dad •I reincarnated as the Crazed Heir •Eleceed •Dungeon Odessy •Time of the Terminally Ill Extra •Reaper of the Drifting Moon •The Boxer •Overgeared

#79-126 (+6 N/A) Nomad Survival was the latest in this mix of games

Edit: Had to reattach the images.
There is lots of variety here with many shorter games coming from different bundles I've bought over the years. Some notable entries among these:
7 Days to die - An enjoyable zombie survival game especially with mods (Darkness Falls) and friends. Some achievements requires multiplayer.
Dark Souls 3 - A really good entry in the Souls franchise where i highly recommend playing through the DLC areas even though they're not required for the 100%. Some achievements can be a chore due to that you need to level up the covenants. (Looking at you blue phantoms).
Escape Simulator - A fun puzzle game where you can bring your friends along to solve the mysteries but with little replayability due to the solutions being more or less the same after you've solved a room once. This is offset by the amount of workshop maps that are available.
Nomad Survival - If you liked Vampire Survivors then this will be very familiar, but here they decided to put more work into the different characters starting ability and less on weapon fusions. Overall a decent experience with a couple of tricky challenges.
Titanfall 2 - The only con I have about this game that it's too short. A great FPS-title.

Some games you might want to avoid:
Barro - Bareboned racing game without any drifting and low effort achievements.ROARR! - Terrible controls and uninteresting spammy gameplay.
Sok-worlds - Just a program about placing assets into a 3-D space. Don't bother.
Treasure Hunter Simulator - An interesting idea, but it's clunky at times, gets repetitive and the consant beeping noise from your metal detector gets tiresome. Save your ears and play something else.
Zup-franchise - Quite easy puzzle games that can be fun for a short period of time, but the sheer amount of achievements are annoying and low effort.

Cover Art & Travis Portrait by Pedro Puglisi Journal Entry #8
I left the village today. It will never be my home again.
I managed to muster enough dignity to at least walk out with the hunters and witch. I've seen plenty of sad sacks that needed to be hog-tied and thrown onto a wagon before, so I knew there was no escaping my fate.
We walked and walked and walked, until my exhausted body fell to the ground when we camped that night. The sky was clear, and the largest moon Porta shone brightly.
I wonder... Do the gods even care that my life as I know it is over?
Mattius and I escaped the rapidly filling cafeteria with our precious cargo of sandwiches, then stood at one of the outdoor tables between the main walkway and green space, hoping to catch Drozuk or someone else before our mission briefing.
Well, Arc was looking, I was busy trying to console Mattius while he routinely kept rechecking the squad assignments between bites of sandwich, the dread on his face growing more and more pronounced as it refused to change who he was going to be in a squad with. From what I've been able to gather, Mattius took the advice I relayed from Arc to heart and hasn't done anything stupid. However, he hasn't done anything bold either. The only communication between each other so far have been short conversations during specialized weapons training a couple of times per week, meaning that they've barely gotten past basic introductions at this point.
"Isn't this your chance to get to know her better?" I cautiously asked, "You'll be in the same squad, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to talk."
Mattius didn't bother to finish his last bite of sandwich, opting instead to mope about, "Please, like she'll give me the time of day when there's a pair of twins to flirt with."
I sighed in response to my friend's pessimism, and to Arc hinting with his snickering that he knew more than he was willing to divulge. I didn't even know how to empathize with Mattius' situation. Here he was with a golden opportunity, but all he could do was sulk. Exchanging letters with Caldia has been nice, but it couldn't hold a candle to how wonderful it was to spend the day with her.
Well... it was, until our... sort-of-date got hijacked.
"Hey! Professor Quinsandoral is approaching with an elven Ice Mage. How much do you want to bet that's his son?"
Welcoming the interruption, I perked my head up in time to see my Wind Spells professor walking along the main path with a young elf who, despite some obvious attempts to look different, was clearly his son. Unlike his dad who normally wore traditional high elf robes of varying colors and only carried a wand for spellcasting assistance, he was wearing the same uniform I was. Albeit his arming jacket was blue instead of forest-green, and had an additional leather bandolier across his chest filled with throwing knives that must have also acted as a mount for the oddly shaped shield on his back.
The faces were what truly confirmed they were father and son, not just because they had nearly identical sharp and angular faces topped with platinum blonde hair, but because they both had matching looks of irritation furrowing their brows. The younger also had a dozen silver piercings to differentiate him, the most notable ones being a spike in each eyebrow, a pair of studs in his nose, and two more in his pointed ears. Something I haven't once seen in any of the other elven students, although I'll be the first to admit I've barely interacted with the non-humans on campus.
Raising my hand in greeting, I shouted out to Professor Quinsandoral, who to my delight, smiled upon seeing Mattius and I by the outdoor bar table. His son, however, visibly sighed and dragged his feet as they moved towards us.
"Young Master Mattius, Travis," Quinsandoral greeted us with a gleeful tone, "I was hoping to meet you before my son's mission briefing." He gestured to his scowling child, "This is Vesril, future Lord of Vörðuhálsmýrdalsjökull, or as you may know it by it's poorly translated name, Glacier-cut Edge."
Raucous laughter violently erupted from Arc in my ears so loud that I instinctively brought both hands up to my ears and winced in pain. My obnoxious sword at least had the decency to quiet down, but a hand on my pauldron and worried look from Mattius made it obvious that I needed to think of an excuse fast.
"You okay?"
"Yeah..." I massaged the sides of my head and back of neck to stall, "just... uh, tweaked my neck is all..." I made a show of relaxing my shoulders to help sell the lie, then secretly vowed to test Arc's heat resistance at the spell range later tonight.
Vesril watched our interaction with his violet-colored eyes, completely cold and expressionless throughout, then in a sudden shift, looked over my shoulder and smirked, "That's a gnarly looking axe."
Professor Quinsandoral tensed up, then spoke through clenched teeth, "Yes, Travis does have an eccentric choice of weaponry..."
Vesril huffed, "Figures, it's perfectly fine for your pet human to wield a unique weapon, but if I want to---"
"Travis isn't an elf!" Quinsandoral barked. "And he doesn't have the legacy of his forebears to uphold."
Vesril rolled his eyes, "Monsters haven't attacked the mountain pass in over six eras, that's hardly a legacy. Why do I need to use the same weapon my great-great-something wielded while cowering behind a wall and never using the thing?"
My professor grabbed his son by the shoulder in a tight grip and cut into him with his glare, "You are on the narrowest of branches boy. Your mother still sees you as a child, and your uncle may only be indifferent as of now, but I have final say on whether you can attend this academy. And let me tell you boy, self-expression isn't looked upon kindly at Krisneirous University. They'll rip out those piercings, burn away your tattoos, and snap that ridiculous thing you call a weapon in half before you take a second step on school grounds."
The tension in the air was near to boiling as the two stared each other down in defiance. Mattius looked just as scared as I was to say anything, knowing that this kettle was only a single bump away from exploding.
Ironically, it was a student bumping into Professor Quinsandoral that broke the tension as they rushed by in a hurry, barely able to spurt out an apology. The father and son broke off their staring contest, and in unison with matching faces, cringed upon realizing they just had a very public argument.
Mattius, showing way more initiative than me, pulled out his pocket watch to check the time, "We should probably get to our meeting." He forced a smile towards Vesril, "Want to join us?"
Vesril shrugged his shoulders while rolling back his eyes, "Sure, I'm heading there anyways."
As the Ethics & Law building came into range, I decided to scout ahead with my focus and see if I could eavesdrop on anyone coming to the mission briefing or at least figure out where Drozuk was. I found him already in the room, seated with his arms crossed, and looking especially grumpy.
Hmm... I'm guessing he's not too thrilled about getting teamed up with Travis, a princess, and an edge lord.
I watched for a few seconds, but after determining that no one in the room was saying anything of substance, I flung my focus over Travis as he entered the building and back outside to watch Princess Seleyna approaching with Sir Asher and another unknown knight. To my surprise, she looked just as grouchy, completely ignoring the unknown knight behind her as they quietly whispered to Asher.
"So, what's got her kindling snapping in the hearth?"
Asher let out a tired sigh, "She's convinced that I'm the one who put her on a team with Travis and Reidar, and flat out refuses to believe I didn't submit anything."
The unknown knight raised her eyebrow, "You didn't? I'm surprised, even I requested a roster change."
Asher chuckled as they approached the building, "Didn't have to, someone already did." He then spoke louder to ensure Princess Seleyna could hear as well, "Honestly, she's being a bit of a hypocrite, given that she submitted a request of her own."
Seleyna ignored the gossip as she stormed in and made her way to the meeting room. By this time, Travis had already sat down in the front row between Vesril and Drozuk, and Mattius took a seat in the second row next to the Creeksmith twins Thaddeus and Zaccheus, so when Seleyna saw Travis' smiling face and friendly wave at her upon entry, she noticeably relaxed and put on a royal smile of her own.
Vesril nodded to the princess as she took the seat next to him, "Princess Seleyna."
"Young Lord Vesril, it's been a while... last year's Spring Gala?"
"Sounds about right." He gestured to Travis, "Your parents pay off the general to put you on the same team with him too?"
Seleyna stifled a laugh, "Not sure, no one's admitted to it yet, but it's safe to assume. That shadow show about us does need a sequel after all." She leaned forward to get a better look at the surly orc, "Drozuk, it was quite the surprise to see that your father was elected Jarl of Coldwater Spring Fortress. Has he been able to settle into his new role?"
"Don't know," Drozuk growled, "he hasn't told me a thing..."
Jarl? Huh... I'm surprised Drozuk never spoke about that, unless... ah, I'm guessing Travis isn't the only one with a dad keeping secrets from them.
The door opened to permit a dozen people in Logistic Corps uniforms, Mattius' crush Treblana, and a tall burly half-orc wearing half-plate. He stepped up to the unknown knight who walked in with Seleyna and reached to shake her hand.
"Captain Adaline, pleasure to finally meet you."
The Royal Knight took the offered hand, "Same as well, Captain Aguk, it's nice to have a face and voice to put to your correspondences."
My focus drifted back towards Mattius, who looked just as nervous as ever whenever he tried talking to Treblana, but at least managed to hide it well and produce a semi-stoic nod of acknowledgement when she took the seat next to him.
"Looks like I'll get to see you fight up close now." Treblana spoke cautiously.
Mattius smiled, "Same here, umm... I'll be counting on you to help overwhelm the opponent, since... you're much more talented at Earth Magic than me. I don't even have the needed mana to mimic the [Earth Wall Slide] you used a couple of weeks ago to shove that muledeer into the arena wall."
"Really? I think you're the talented one. Even from the stands I can tell every repeated structure you build is identical in dimensions and spaced out the same distance."
As usual, their conversation was cut short, right as they were about to build momentum, when Brigadier General Jonas called the meeting to order.
"This looks to be everyone, so let's begin." The general reached to pick up a box in front of him, "Your mission will be twofold; monster eradication in the Coldwater Spring Fortress' territory, and diplomatic relations with the fortresses you'll be harboring at during your journey." He opened the box to pull out a very familiar looking baseball sized sphere infused heavily with Order Mana and a Wind Mana gem embedded in its core. "This is a Master Message Stone. Unlike the private ones some of you carry or the inscriptions in your helmets, this does not vibrate or create sound. Its construction does have a unique advantage though..."
General Jonas grinned madly as he let the orb roll off his hand and crash onto the stone floor with a loud bang, causing all the students to flinch. He softly chuckled as he reached to pick the extremely valuable artifice back up, "It can maintain its paired frequency for a minimum of twelve years, despite how roughly its treated. Princess Seleyna will be presenting one of these to each fortress you visit, partially to build positive public relations with the populace outside of the capital, but also as part of a test run for the Queen's proposed long-range communication improvements."
Twelve years! Holy gods and God, I know the gift Travis received from the queen was expensive but... wow! The inscriptions in Travis' helmet require daily resynchronizations for the private and squad channels to ensure they don't randomly cut out, the battalion channel needs a weekly reset (assuming normal amount of chatter), and the emergency channel can maybe last two months if he doesn't take a blow to the head to rattle the inscription.
Travis must have had the same thought since I caught him stiffening up and gently placing his hand over the valuables pouch on his belt.
The general continued with the mission brief, starting with introductions to the battalion's leadership, "Captain of Squad 1, Royal Knight Adaline will have general command of the battalion's diplomatic and over all mission, Spartan Captain Aguk of Squad 2 will be acting lead for combat operations, and Raven Four will provide scouting and logistics security with their squad." He paused to gesture to the back row of people wearing the double-breasted jackets of the Logistics Corps, "Staff Sergeant Julien and his team, along with six horses, will manage supplies, field maintenance, and the camp. Keep in mind that they will be outnumbered three to one, so you will be expected to assist when needed."
I continued to listen in on the dry presentation, taking notes so Travis could consult me if needed, but I did take time to enjoy watching the corpsmen and mages struggle to stay awake as the general droned on and on. Honestly, two hours to basically state that everyone will take a gun boat down and up the rivers, stopping occasionally to overnight at some of the more prominent riverside fortresses on the way, then coordinating with the Jarl of Coldwater Spring Fortress to kill as many monsters as possible after arrival seemed like overkill, but maybe that's just because all Travis really needs to do is whatever his squad captains tell him to do.
Eventually, the torture session... err, I mean meeting... ended, and Travis was preparing to leave with his friends for a late lunch when one of the logistics corpsmen called out to him.
"Sir Travis, can you spare a moment of your time."
Travis whirled around to face the approaching man and nervous teenager accompanying him, "Uh... sure, what do you need sergeant?"
He saluted Travis, then reached into his satchel, "This morning, during our preparations, we discovered to our dismay that one of the horses assigned to our mission will not be fully recovered in time from an injury to be cleared for deployment. As a result, we need a last-minute replacement, and Private Tomas has kindly informed me that your horse, 5751054, enlisted last night."
Heh, he almost makes it sound like Travis' nameless horse enlisted on his own.
Travis pondered the request, "Doesn't he need training?"
The Staff Sergeant glanced towards the private, until the social pressure forced Tomas to speak, "Sir! 5751054 is already trained to ride, haul, and self-navigate. He will not be required to know more for this mission given the limited need for equine support."
Travis shrugged, "Well, if he's willing... then I guess I am too."
Sergeant Julien smiled, then handed Travis a document, "Just need your final approval."
Travis signed the sheet, handed it back, then addressed the private, "Will you be in charge of the horses?"
The corpsman saluted, "Yes sir, I'm Private Tomas, my main duty will be to act as stablemaster and coachman."
Travis nodded, then spoke in a stern voice, "5751054 is precious to me. My parents saved up for two years to purchase him for my eighteenth birthday, and still had to do so on credit from my village's horse breeder. If something were to happen to him..."
Tomas gulped, "Understood sir, I will ensure he's properly cared for."
Super serious Travis gave another nod, but broke character instantly after taking two steps away, "Oh, wait! When does he need to report in? I was going to take him to run a few errands this afternoon and might need to make a run to get some last-minute supplies tomorrow."
Staff Sergeant Julien smirked, "As long as he's in his stable when you drop off your personal supply crate tomorrow night, you should be fine."
Travis exhaled a sigh of relief, noticed that his friends had already left for lunch proper, then rushed out the door to go catch up.
Julien gave Tomas a firm slap on the back, "See, I told you he'd be amenable. Most mages are too preoccupied to fuss over small details, so the trick is to make it seem like you're doing them a favor, instead of trying to save your own ass."
Tomas grumbled, "I still can't believe 5640161 did something so stupid."
"Meh, it's probably for the best. You know how primes can be when told to pull carts in a team."
"I know, but still... prancing backwards down the exit ramp?"
The Staff Sergeant could only shrug their shoulders in reply.
"Your left one's drifting again."
I paused the warmup routine Reidar taught me to check over my [Water Bracer] enchantment and scowled. This spell was proving much more difficult to maintain than [Earth Cleat] or the [Message] enchantment I created on my helmet's dust filter.
It seemed so simple when I got the spell at first too. Basically, just a trio of condensing arrays on the inside of my forearm to collect Water, and six evenly spaced lines at 60-degrees on my outer vambrace to create a thin layer of fast-moving water capable of deflecting small objects down and away from my face. I didn't even stumble much on the diagram's mentioned tricky part of getting the Water to jump over the gaps between my forearm plates, just having difficulty keeping the parallel lines evenly spaced and at the correct angle.
"Hmm... it's a lot harder to keep my formation consistent without a flat surface, and I don't have anything to act as guidelines..." Trying to puzzle out a solution, I thought back to the serving pots Ansel's family used. They were rounded as well but had decorative indentations and ridges to help with spacing and line shape, similar to how I could use my boot treads as a reference for forming [Earth Cleat].
"Ah, I think I understand now why the inscriptions senior students use are so different from the one on Lancel's sword and other knight weapons. When I got a good look at that shield Vesril carries, I noticed it had a lot of directionless Water inscription lines running along it. I'm guessing any enchantment he casts will use the inscription as a skeleton to keep it from falling apart in combat."
I nodded along as I cast a cloud of Fire Mana off my palm and tried to squeeze it into as tiny of a ball as possible, allowing some of my frustration to bleed out, "That makes sense. It'd be like using graph paper to write out a formation. I bet it's a lot easier to invert or neutralize the direction of a line too if the core is made up of mana dust or gems."
"Thramreat mentioned that dwarves used to paint spell formations on their bodies, maybe you can do something similar with your bracers?"
"Good idea." I tossed the ball of Fire Mana above my head, reshaped it into a [Fire Orb], then nodded to Arc sticking out of the ground down range, "Okay, I'm ready."
Light and Shadow Mana pools around Arc as he starts playing music, until a wireframe statue of a bull's head emerges from the ground. Slowly, but surely, the rest of the creature appears, starting with a wattle, pair of giant chicken feet, bull's body and hind legs, and a chicken's tailfeathers.
Bullcock, a single element monster, this stable hybrid of a bull and rooster is well known for their aggressive charges, fast swipes with their spurs, and ability to spit Fire from a distance, but mostly for their excellent tasting meat and valuable leather.
I froze for a moment, eyes locked onto its claws... this is the monster that nearly killed my dad...
Anger floods my body with battle lust, and I nearly forget to dodge when it starts rushing towards me, not even leaving a full foot between us. It digs one of its oversized claws into the ground after it misses me, then swings the rest of its body around in a 180 to quickly about face. I raise my hand to cast [Fire Bolt], but a horn screeches loudly in my ear, disrupting my concentration.
"You want friendly fire? Because that's how you get friendly fire."
I swear as the bullcock makes another charge. Idiot! You can only launch spells downrange! I'll get my boat axed if I damage the building or accidentally lob a spell into another person's private spell range.
The bullcock angles his charge, so I can't safely launch a spell after dodging again, but that doesn't stop it from doing so. The wattle underneath its chin swells up, and a trio of [Light Bolts] fly towards me after the bullcock opens its mouth. I bring up my forearms to block, and manage to deflect the first projectile, but the second and third harmlessly splash against my chest, prompting Arc to start taunting me.
"Oh, c'mon! I've seen children with better reflexes than that."
Clenching my teeth, I try to block out all outside distractions, and focus solely on the task at hand. Using [Earth Cleat] to give my side-steps an extra burst of speed on top of my mana reinforced strides, [Water Bracer] to allow me to forgo a shield and deflect the spit attacks, and at every opportunity, I launch as many Bolt spells as I can downrange.
Like usual, Arc keeps increasing the difficulty, first by making the bullcock move slightly faster, then having it extend a claw to try and swipe at me during its charge, and finally varying the number of Bolts he spits back at me. We keep fighting, long past the point where the monster or I would have died, only allowing short pauses for me to fix my bracer enchantments, but without any warning or fanfare, Arc abruptly stopped the music and dispersed his controlled mana.
Confused as to what happened, I darted my head around, until I spotted Hector entering through the door.
"Sorry, didn't mean to startle you again."
I released the breath I was holding in, then reached up to take off my helmet and shake away the sweat from my face, "It's alright, just... wasn't expecting company is all. You're the first person to come visit me here."
The bearded Packer made a nervous chuckle as he looked back towards the door, "Yeah, I think the only reason the rangemaster let me pass was because I'm your drill instructor."
My eyes perked up after finally noticing what was on his back, "You got your poleaxe made!"
Hector grinned as he handed it to me for inspection, "Yep, did the final assembly with the polearms club this afternoon, and even demonstrated what I've been teaching you."
I groaned with guilt after taking his weapon. I definitely could have made time this afternoon to visit the club, it's not like I didn't know when they were meeting this week. Looking down despondently, I began to inspect Hector's re-creation of my weapon, seeing quite a few differences before even looking with my mana sight.
Overall, the material quality and mana density was much lower, using the same mid-grade dwarven steel my armor was made of and ironwood, but it did have some good quality leather wrapping around the middle of the shaft and part way up the langets.
"What's with the leather?"
"That's what I'm using right now as a workaround to improve my attunement connection to the weapon heads. Tristan and Percy are heading up north for their Fall Expeditions, so they promised to try and win an elmek horn or something similar to replace the shaft with."
I nodded along, checking over the structural build to see if there were any errors, "Speaking of, I'm surprised you're not at the Hopkins' estate. Aren't you on leave until classes start again now?"
Hector scratched the back of his head, "I... uh... didn't have any brothers growing up, so... those three can get a bit too... rowdy for me."
"Ha, I can relate, I'm an only child." I finished my inspection, not finding any obvious flaws in the build, "Alright if I attune to it?"
"Go ahead."
The mana inside the poleaxe ramped up to match mine in only a fraction of the time it took me to sync with mine, and unsurprisingly, I was able to maintain the attunement when I tried using mana reinforcement. It did feel a little strange however, like I was squeezing my body through a narrow gap in the fence each time, so I must have been near my limit for how large and mana dense an object can be for me to attune with.
Hector watched me test out his new toy, but cocked his head when he noticed Arc planted in the dirt near the back wall, "What's your sword doing down there?"
"Oh, umm..." I turned towards my best friend and had a spark of inspiration, "Since it's indestructible, I like to use it for target practice."
Target practice? What do you---
Arc's words cut-off right as I hit his blade with a [Fire Bolt].
"Ouch! That actually hurt a little..."
Hector barked a few laughs as he placed a hand on my pauldron, then suddenly wrapped his fingers around the edges to dig painfully into my deltoid, "Initiate, when in uniform, you are expected to keep your sword sheathed and on your person when not in use. I strongly advise you to do so in the future."
I gulped, "Yes sir."
The pain stopped, replacing it with an affectionate pat as he gave me a sly grin, "Now, when you say indestructible, do you really mean indestructible? Because I've heard the stories and rumors about these blades, but never quite believed them."
Arc began to moan. "Ugh, I knew this was going to happen eventually."
Snowsday, the 32nd^ of Eighthmonth
Travis looked down at his directions, then back up to the intersection in the artificer burrow and sighed.
"It just says left, not left-left or first left?"
My bestest buddy in this whole world shook their head and frowned. We'd come up to another intersection, but instead of the usual four-way cross, the left side hallway entrances were spaced 60-degrees apart.
"Well, logic would assume they mean the first left..."
"Yeah, but that one is newly constructed. There's no scuff marks or scratches on the walls, unlike the second one on the left."
I mentally groaned. That does it, I'm putting a pin in the auto-translator upgrade on my soul's patch and am going to implement a mapmaking feature. Not like Travis really needs the translator anyways, humans all speak the same language, despite originally being four distinct cultures, and common is used as the international trade language between the three kingdoms.
I still don't get how that's possible. I mean, nowadays you have the military shuffling soldiers all over the kingdom and congregating every year for the Spring Flood to help spread and reinforce the language, but according to Travis' history books, humans all spoke the same language before the four tribes united. Maybe the alphabet being phonetic helps prevent regional dialects from forming? These guys don't even have a word for homophone. Although, I don't get how that's possible either... elves are the ones who invented paper, humans had to use good old-fashioned leather scrolls before Oskar made contact.
"Oh, sorry, got lost in my head. Uh... just pick a direction, if it's not right, I can replay my memory and help you backtrack."
Travis nodded, then took the first left, walking down the tunnel for a full minute before a couple of familiar looking dwarves, plus a human and an elf, came into view.
Thramreat was pacing in full armor with an anime-sized war-pick on their back, glaring occasionally at what I now recognized was the entrance to Durinn's workshop as the elf held her ear up to the tumbler lock. The beardless dwarf kept mumbling, eventually letting their thoughts be heard. "I still don't feel comfortable doing this..."
Orebeck, also decked out in full plate, but with an extra bandolier of glass vials across their chest and a heavily modified crossbow on their back, was looking completely fed up, "Well... I didn't feel comfortable making an aphrodisiac so you could seal the nest with my best friend. So, we're all just going to have to pound sand for a while."
The brawny knight (who might have been a goliath, I couldn't tell for sure), looked down at the two dwarves with a completely baffled expression, then leaned towards the elf to whisper, "Umm... I thought he just mixed up a thing of beard oil?"
The elf stopped her lockpicking attempt to lightly pound her head against the door and sigh, "Yes, they did. But dwarves... work differently when it comes to mating." She snapped her head towards Travis as he approached and hissed at the party, "Quiet! Someone's approaching."
Travis waved to the group, blissfully unaware of who they were at first until Thramreat began to panic.
"Travis! Umm... it's not what it looks like!"
Orebeck and the bow wielding elf both facepalmed, unlike the knight who grinned and waved back, "Hi Travis! Are you coming back to the estate for the training camp?"
"Uh... no, I'm going on a Fall Expedition... Do I know you?" Travis gave the Darius-sized knight a second glance.
The knight padded their chest, "Oh, sorry, don't have my tabard on. Thramreat said it would get dirty." He extended a cheerful hand forward, "I'm Knight Lieutenant Evan Raycraft. You have a really pretty singing voice."
Travis shook the offered hand, "Thank you." He turned to look at Thramreat, but abruptly stopped part way to look at the door, "Oh, this is Durinn's workshop... Wait, why are you guys here?"
Thramreat, still looking as guilty as a rat in a grain bin, quickly spoke first, "Just passing through. That's all."
Orebeck rolled their eyes at the dwarf's pitiful attempt to lie, "We're trying to break-in to Durinn's workshop. I know where they keep their hidden files, so we can use them to help prepare while we ride out to the nesting grounds."
Travis still looked confused, "Umm... why would you need that? Also, why are you all fully decked out and armed to the teeth?"
"Always smart to use protection when approaching a bearded's nest." Thramreat replied, then grumbled, "And as for the former... Durinn is apparently a sinner in the eyes of the bearded."
Orebeck finally lost their temper, and unloaded on the beardless, "Oh, would you quit being such a self-righteous beaver you orthodox piece of slag! Every bearded does it. It's perfectly natural."
"Enough!" The elf shouted, forcing the argument to stop. She glared at each dwarf to ensure their silence, let out a huff of frustration, then smiled at Travis, "Apologies, I haven't introduced myself. I'm Watcher Ariawyn Famaris. Was there a reason you came to visit Durinn's workshop?"
"Oh, umm... actually, I was looking for Thramreat." Travis turned towards the dwarf, "I've been having troubles with a Water enchantment for my bracers and was wondering if dwarves still used monster paste to help assist with their spellcraft."
Orebeck let out a chuckle as they dug through one of their pouches to toss something dense with Water Mana towards Travis, "Here, catch. Monster paste will just wash away after a few minutes. We use mana-infused wax nowadays for Water Enchantments. Just heat it up a bit to apply, but be careful not to let it melt off in combat, oh... and make sure you wipe your armor clean every night. It'll corrode the rust protection if you don't."
"Thanks," Travis gave a nervous wave goodbye, "umm... tell Durinn I said hi."
A pair of golden eyes stared up at me, catching the sunlight from the patio door in my dorm's living room just right to make them look like they were glowing. I reached forward to tickle the baby's tummy and started grinning like a madman when Boris started to giggle and smile back.
"Ugh, I can feel my soul getting stretchmarks just from looking at the cute little guy."
I leaned back to relax in my chair, enjoying the sight of Gramps completely taking over not just the packing of my crate, but Drozuk's too.
"Waterproof cards, dice set, blank notebooks, charcoal sticks, barbecue sauce, sandals..."
Caldia, to my surprise, came with her dad, but she was busy designing the family crest that Drozuk wanted to submit for reservation before leaving tomorrow and decorating our crates so they'd be easy to identify.
Oh, and Barry was here too. He brought up a crate of "essentials" that every soldier needs, including a pair of paperback "adventure novels" that he told me not to worry about if they get ruined or misplaced. I think my face was still red from blushing when he snuck those into the bottom of my crate.
Everything was just so... peaceful. With Gramps taking charge, I had absolutely nothing to do at the moment (other than anger Caldia by getting to hold the baby). The care package I spent my afternoon assembling yesterday was already sealed and labeled to ship to Aelder Creek, the aelderwood scraps I received from Father Viburnum were secured in my lockbox, and Gramps already agreed to store it in the Hopkins' vault while I'm away.
My respite eventually ended though. Gramps finished off the checklist that he brought, and closed the lid on Drozuk's crate, but stopped before doing the same for mine.
"Drozuk, would you mind taking the baby for a moment?"
Not sure what was going on, I stood up so I could approach my roommate, and smiled as he went as stiff as a statue when I handed Boris to him. I then turned back to see that Darius was holding a blanket in his hands.
"Travis, if you don't mind, there's an old Packer tradition that my family would like to conduct with you, given how you're technically a former ward of our house. It's a very old one that dates back long before the kingdom was founded and is observed whenever a young man comes of age. It originally started as the final parting gift of a mother to her son before he went to become a spartan, a reminder of which clans he and his ancestors were descendant of, but over time, as our values changed, so has this tradition."
I nodded my head, not even considering the possibility of saying no, especially with how emotional he and Barry were becoming.
Darius unfurled the blanket, allowing me to see the majestic work of art it was. It was a deep black, but the fabric shimmered with a swirling mix of violet, silver, pink, and blue light. The moons and stars were stitched into it, arranged into the constellations of the Elemental Eight greater monsters. Thunderhawk, the screeching death. Thunderhoof, the raging bull. Sunbeaver, the mountain shaper. Copperdillo, the invulnerable force. Diamondback, the walking fortress. Bushtail, the forest tender. Dark Drake, the unexpected disaster. And Icefang, the sun eater.
"In the Southern Plains, it's easy to get lost after fighting countless battles in the seemingly endless expanse of grass and gentle hills. Should you ever find yourself alone and in need of comfort, let the stars guide you, and eventually you'll find your way home."
I gazed up at Gramp's blubbering face through my own welling tears and reached forward to receive one of his legendary hugs.
"It's beautiful. Thank you so much."

2023.05.26 11:00 Paninjjn Learning to enjoy Rise

Hey there!

A few months back I made a post discussing some parts of Rise where I felt work could be done to create the "perfect" Monster Hunter. Speaking truthfully I made the post out of a frustration over my own lack of enjoyment of the game and rather than adjusting my playstyle and trying new things I sought reasons for it with the game itself. Since then I have played more and I wanted to share some things I did, which significantly increased my enjoyment. Maybe if you are burnt out yourself or lack that spark to get hunting again, this list may help you.

While this is not an exhaustive list of everything that I've changed about my ingame playstyle, I hope maybe some of you can identify with this post or get some use out of my experiences. Would love to hear from any more tips the community may have to make our every day hunts that much more fun. Cheers and lots of love,

I asked Bing to generate some TTRPG campaign names for Starfinder that follow the Japanese anime trope where the titles are long and descriptive. I would love to see some of these results as anime!

2023.05.26 01:02 ChiefWakaWaka1 Empty Vessel

Trying to find an Empty Vessel to use within triple swap DPS rotations. I primarily play hunter so grenade spam isn't as accessible to me.
I've also realized that my only other energy disorienting GL is an AL Disruption break Truthteller. Would it be worth it to keep any of these as a replacement for that?

2023.05.25 20:00 DTG_Bot This Week at Bungie - 05/25/2023

Source: https://www.bungie.net/7/en/News/Article/twab-may-25-2023
This week at Bungie, we’re expanding that IP family a little more, getting our PlayStation on with some fun new crossovers coming to Destiny 2, and living out our aquanaut fantasies.
What a week, am I right? Bungie’s second PlayStation showcase since we joined the PS fam, and we couldn’t be more excited to share just a smidge of what the teams here have been working on behind the scenes. The future is bright, but for right now? We deep dive for Sloane whilst wearing our finest PlayStation-inspired digs. But before we delve into the delectable secrets of another TWAB, here’s a quick look back at what we talked about last week:
  • Final Season 21 prep.
  • An in-depth preview of the Seasonal Artifact.
  • A first look at the three new Strand Aspects. (Live now!)
  • An update to how enemy shields appear.
  • The final standings of the Guardian Games Cup.
  • We have the newly announced [email protected] Inclusion Club.
  • The new Twitch Bounty emblem.
For this week, here’s what we’ve got coming down the pipeline:
  • It’s not a sprint, it’s a Marathon.
  • Sony and Bungie team up for some PlayStation crossover goodness.
    • Another cosplay challenge is on the horizon.
  • Farewell Guardian Games, see you next year!
  • A look at the Season 21 opening cutscene.
  • Save the Date: Season 21 edition.
  • Guardian Ranks reminder.
  • Don’t let those Aquanaut dreams be dreams.
  • A message from the Archives.
  • This week’s Player Support Report.
  • Community picks for Art of the Week and Movie of the Week.
All good? Perfect, let’s get into it.

On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!

We’ve had a huge week at Bungie, and we’re excited to be sharing more. Yesterday, one of the reveals at the PlayStation Showcase event was that of Cayde-6's return to the Destiny franchise in The Final Shape. We also dropped another knowledge bomb that players have been excited for; and that’s that Nathan Fillion will be reprising his role as Cayde-6 in the Destiny Universe.
Video Link
So, get that ramen ready and mark your calendars for August 22, because that’s the date of our annual Destiny 2 Showcase. There, we will be revealing even more details on the year of The Final Shape.

It's Not a Sprint...

Destiny news wasn’t the only news we shared. It’s time to go back to our roots. That’s right, it’s time to get ready for a Marathon! In case you missed the announcement during the most recent PlayStation State of Play showcase earlier this week, Marathon is a sci-fi PVP extraction shooter where players will embody cybernetic mercenaries known as Runners. Exploring a lost colony on the mysterious planet of Tau Ceti IV, Runners – working solo or as part of three-person crews – will fight for survival, riches, and for fame.
How about a fancy announcement trailer and a new Vidoc? Roll the clip:
Video Link
We’re excited about the future and are excited to share more Marathon news with you, but as mentioned in the Vidoc we are going to be going heads down on this game for a while as we work to get it ready for prime time.
This will be the last time you hear any Marathon-specific news in the TWAB. We are going to be creating clear communication lanes going forward and you can find Marathon news on the following channels:
HaVe you ever thought to yourself, “Self, I’m pretty darn amazing, but I’d be even cooler if I could be Aloy”? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone! We’re here to tell you to not let those dreams be dreams, because now you can get your Aloy, Kratos, and Jin on in the world of Destiny 2 with the spiffy new PlayStation collaboration gear just announced!
Hunters? Boom. Titans? Straight fire. Warlocks? Yes, please! But don’t take our word for it, feast those fandom eyes on these beauties:
Image Link
So, what eXactly is available, you may be asking? Fair questioN, especially if you haven’t checked out the new PlayStation Blog post right here, this is what you need to know about what we’Ve got up for grabs, available separately and in 3 bundles:
For geared-up badassery, these armor ornamenT bundles are for you:
  • Anointed Hunter for Hunters
  • Godsbane for Titans
  • Ancestral for Warlocks
For killer finisher moves, check out the Endless RoaMer bundle:
  • From NowheRe
  • Whirling Chaos
  • Perfect Strike
Image Link

Image Link
And you can’t forget about the CordycePs bundle:
  • Clicker Ghost
  • Blooming Terror Ship
  • Quarantine Runner Ship
All of this, plus a swanky Gadgeteer Emote to harness your inner Ratchet (or your inner Clank, we’re not choosy), which you can also get in the Eververse store.
Image Link
And don’t worry, these items are not platform-exclusive. Get your Kratos on.
Dope, right? Before diving into what’s next (hint, it has to do with cosplay), we’re going to go ahead and give you a second to collect yourselves. We can hear you yelling “boy!” from here.

Cosplay, Cosplay Never Changes

You know we love ourselves a good time when it comes to a cosplay contest. Let’s be real, when dealing with epic characters like Aloy, Kratos, and Jin, how could we not challenge our incredible community to harness their creativity? So, let’s get silly and have some cosplay fun, shall we?
We did this last year for Bungie Day and the submissions were nothing short of pure serotonin. That’s why we’re excited to see what y’all come up with this challenge. Take your best shot at recreating some of the new armor looks in Destiny 2 repping that PlayStation love, but with a twist. You can’t go buy anything, just pull whatever it is that you have at your disposal and go wild. The impressive, the weird, and the, “How did you even come up with that!?” — we want it all!
We’ll be featuring submissions from now until the end of June, so you have plenty of time to get those creative juices flowing. If your submission is chosen (or retweeted from the official @DestinytheGame Twitter account), then you’ll not only get rad bragging rights, but the highly coveted Art of the Week emblem too. And the knowledge that when you go to sleep at night, you’re nothing short of a legend, but we digress. Anyway, shoot us your cosplay, hit us with the #Destiny2Cosplay hashtag so we can make sure to see those totally cooked homages, and just have fun with it. Can’t wait to see them!

So Long, Guardian Games '23, And Thanks For All the Titan Ws

Another Guardian Games and Guardian Games Cup has come and gone. Many of you swapped classes to prioritize this year’s games with your best Titan garb to do our Commander proud. Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks all gave it their best but there could only be one winner. Congrats Titans on pulling a flawless victory, always knew you had it in ya. This one’s for you, Lance.
In partnership with the Bungie Foundation for the second year in a row, Guardian Games Cup saw teams from around the globe raising almost $150,000 for Direct Relief and the International Rescue Committee. The top four teams in the Charitable and Technical categories will receive prizes for their accomplishments. Thank you to all of the Guardians who participated!
Charitable category
  • Lost City Guardians
  • Destiny 2 Japan Creator
  • Metagalactic Boomers
Technical category
  • Popcorn
  • Ursidae
  • Prayer
  • Lighthouse Community Team ##It's Time to Taken Sloane Home (After This Season's Opening Cutscene, Of Course)
You know, this is one of those “don’t ruin this moment with words” times, so let’s just get right into the opening cutscene for Season of the Deep (if you haven't seen it yet and don't want to be spoiled, please skip the below video):

Sloane is back, but that doesn’t mean that the fight stops. Now that we’ve teamed up with Zavala to bring her back home, it’s time to jump into yet another precarious life-or-death situation. And it all began with a simple distress call... '

Save the Dave and Dive Deep into What's Happening in Season 21

Whether you’re only sticking around in this section for a new dungeon date reminder—which, valid—or itching to start planning for that Grandmasters crawl (like a pub crawl but rated T for Teen), here are a few dates you should keep in mind for the new Season:
  • New dungeon hype, new dungeon hype, new dungeon hype!
    • The new dungeon, Ghosts of the Deep, arrives tomorrow!
  • Season 21 Trials of Osiris also goes live tomorrow.
    • Learn more about Trials rewards here.
  • First Iron Banner of the Season starts next week on May 30.
  • Grandmasters start early on June 13.
  • Solstice brings its sunny celebration on July 18.

    Guardian Ranks Reminder, Don't Panic

Now that we’re fully immersed in a brand-new Season and investigating previously unexplored areas on Titan, just a friendly reminder for those interested in their Guardian Rank progression and how that evolves from season to season.
Players who have already completed the objectives required to reach Rank 5 will start each new season at Guardian Rank 5. Other things to keep in mind:
  • Only Seasonal Guardian Rank objectives (the ones in blue text) are reset.
    • Get those comfy sweatpants ready, fellow fans of cozy, it’s time to game.
  • Guardians display the previous Season’s rank for the entire following season, so you will still have that badge of accomplishment.
We’ve also taken a good look at feedback regarding Guardian Ranks, the objectives tied to them, and have made additional adjustments to make them feel more enjoyable and in-line with your goals.

Don't Let Those Aquanaut Dreams be Dreams

It wouldn’t be a new Season without a new shiny title to earn and pin to snag! Take on the dangers of Titan for a chance to earn the new Aquanaut title. And don’t stop there, no... Commemorate your accomplishments with a shiny medallion that actually is like a little gift to yourself. I’m not sure about you all, but the little narrative anecdotes in each one makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Get your own warm and fuzzies by earning the Aquanaut title before August 22, 2023, to unlock this Bungie Rewards offer through the Bungie Store. Happy diving!

A Message from the Archives

Remember that dope playlist we shared earlier this year highlighting cutscenes from seasons past? The ever-evolving list has just evolved once more with three newly added videos of glorious narrative goodness. If you’re interested in scoping it out, you can find Season 13 (Chosen), Season 14 (Splicer), and Season 20 (Defiance) added to this snazzy playlist right here.

Player Support Report

OMB Sloane hiiii!!!!
Image Link
Another week, another Player Support report, this time diving into the first week of Season of the Deep. On the land side of things, here is the latest update on known issues.
Known Issues List Help Forums Bungie Help Twitter
Starting with the launch of Season of the Deep, emblem ownership values were updated. For security purposes, players who have emblems on their account that do not appear in their Collections ( Collections > Flair > Emblems > General) will no longer be able to equip these emblems, and players will no longer be able to see these emblems if they are still equipped. Those who are affected by this change will need to reacquire these emblems through proper means by unlocking them in their Bungie.net profiles or on their platform if they wish to continue using them.
Players who have emblems unlocked on their Bungie.net accounts and platforms are unaffected by this change.
With the launch of Season of the Deep, new Strand fragments have become available to unlock. Players who complete the Unfinished Business Exotic quest can now speak to Nimbus to acquire a quest to earn new Strand aspects and learn more about the Veil.
The latest dungeon launches at 10 AM, May 26. To access the dungeon, players will need to own the Lightfall Dungeon Key and acquire the associated quest from Hawthorne prior to launching into the dungeon for the first time.
With the launch of Season of the Deep, Last Wish weapons are now available to be crafted. Additionally, players can visit Hawthorne each week to acquire the O Deepsight Mine quest to unlock the ability to purchase a previously obtained Last Wish weapon with Deepsight upon completion.
While we continue investigating various known issues, here is a list of the latest issues that were reported to us in our #Help Forum:
  • The Electric Armor and Amped Up Artifact mods names are switched. These mods will still function correctly based on their descriptions.
  • The Until Its Return Shotgun's glare is disconnected from the weapon.
  • The Dark Decider Auto Rifle does not have firing audio.
  • Previous Season Ranks greater than 100 are displaying incorrectly in the Journey tab.
  • Some subtitles do not appear during the Season of the Deep opening cinematic.
  • When equipping a Sidearm or Hand Cannon, the player’s view will shift slightly to the left.
  • The portal in the H.E.L.M. does not open for players during the Into The Depths quest.
  • Players may experience framerate drops when opening the Eververse store pages.
  • The Season 19 clan staff has the incorrect title.
  • We are aware of reports that Exotic armor focusing is dropping with lower stats than intended and are currently investigating.
  • We are investigating an issue where players are blocked from completing the Season 21 Into the Depths introductory quest. Players who don't auto-launch into The Descent mission must complete Lightfall's intro mission first, otherwise, they will get blocked from completion.
For a full list of emergent issues in Destiny 2, players can review our Known Issues article. Players who observe other issues should report them to our #Help Forum.

Ivan: I’d love to have a guided Vow of the Disciple tour by Rhulk. I’m sure there are many stories to be told. This amazing art was inspired by my beloved Blade Runner 2049, so picking this entry as #Destiny2AOTW is a no-brainer for me. Congrats!

That’s a wrap on another TWAB. Now it’s time to dive back into the mysterious methane seas of Titan. And you know what, with all that liquid it’ll be even easier to remember to drink some water. (Just... please don’t drink the seas of Titan. We’re literally begging. Thank you.)
Before we let you go, be sure to follow the @Destiny2Team account on Twitter for more from Bungie devs on what’s going on in the world of Destiny 2.
And while we’re all waiting on the next TWAB, remember to keep drinking that water, prioritizing that self-care, and always lead with your kindest foot forward. Until next time, friends.
"I should go,”
<3 Hippy

2023.05.25 08:53 Dak1on The Princess and the Human, Book 2 Prologue

Book 1

The light coming off of the nearby twin star formation dimly illuminated the left half of Krndl’s face, as she leisurely sat in her chair in captain’s quarter. One of the few places on the Hunter where she wasn’t one step away from an anxiety attack. The Hunter was a light cruiser, currently leading a destroyer flotilla on route patrol around the Bridgeway. This piece of space was called such because nothing was here. It simply was the shortest path between two disconnected hyperlanes and was an inevitable route if the Krsnelv wanted to traverse from their planet to Hohmiy and vice versa. Apparently, a new trade deal made the route even more important than before. How had Krndl ended up leading an entire flotilla securing one of the appropriately named secure routes? Fuck if she knew.
The Krsnelv, being the only carnivorous species within the alliance, had a name for being ferocious and tenacious fighters. Krndl had no idea how that was supposed to follow, their ancestors had been scavengers rather than predators after all. A detail nobody seemed to care about. Sure, they had one of the strongest fleets together with the Vanaery - and maybe the Tystrie, but thanks to their seclusion no one knew for certain. Krndl also thought she could recall hearing something about her kind having a decisive role in the alliance war, but she didn't know that one for sure. She was no historian, after all. Not that it mattered. The point was, her species as a whole hardly lived up to its name. Some individuals might, but she definitely wasn’t among them. She hadn’t even wanted to become a soldier in the first place. At a time when she couldn't decide what to do with her life, a mixture of peer pressure and bad timing had brought her to the barracks. She had then planned to lay low and later apply for some backline position, maybe the signal corps or something like that. Nothing with risk to her life and nothing with too much responsibility, that was the goal. The others in her group had all been quite eager and ambitious, so she thought it wouldn’t be too hard to not stand out.
But somehow, not standing out had been what made her stand out. ‘Ambitious people always want to prove themselves, and that will always cause more problems than it solves. I don’t need an ambitious commander, I need one who simply does their job.’ Jerk. Who promoted someone on that basis?
Her attempts of dodging the way up by displaying herself as risk-averse had achieved the exact opposite, because ‘someone that resourceful is wasted on a small ship’. Her fear of making the wrong decisions then prompted her to never make any herself, instead she always let someone who seemed to know their stuff make the call. But apparently ‘the ability to correctly delegate is a sign of a capable leader’. And now she was here. Tasked with arguably one of the most important duties during peacetime, despite never having seen any form of battle.
At first, her job had been an absolute nightmare. Day in and day out she had dreaded anything happening, not just an attack that would risk her life, but any situation that would require her to make an important decision. By now, it had gotten better. She now was in her position for about a cycle and a half, and she had learned that the chances of an attack were actually quite slim. Not because the Kiroscha weren’t out for blood, they still absolutely were. They simply showed no interest in fighting the patrol fleets. They preferred quick strikes against single targets, and if they should find a gap in the patrol, it wouldn’t be Krndl’s fault. She would simply stick to the plan, if the plan had such a gap it wasn’t her fault. Would someone else in her position regularly audit the plan? Maybe, but as stated, she was wholly unqualified for her position. Unfortunately, it was too late to go for a different carrier path. All she could do was hold out until she could afford an early retirement.
The console on the other side of the room beeped. She hated that noise. It meant someone wanted to contact her. And it wasn’t one of the regular reports that she would always pretend to evaluate – or understand, for that matter. No, if this console beeped, something came up that the regular procedure didn’t account for. Which meant she had to make a decision, which meant another chance for her to mess up big time.
“Yes?” she asked, opening the channel.
“Ma’am, we are receiving a strange signal. It doesn’t fit any code, but the way it repeats makes it look like a distress signal.”
“I’m coming. Call Rndz to the bridge as well.”
“Yes, Ma’am!”
Krndl took a deep breath to ease her nerves, before donning her insignia and making her way to the bridge. It wasn’t far from her quarters so the walk was short. Way too short for her taste. But wishing for the walk not to end just meant it would feel even shorter. Alas, before she could do much to calm herself, she was already there. Surprisingly, Rndz was already waiting for her.
“Status,” she called one of the standard lines she had often heard other captains use. The operator quickly briefed Rndz about what he had just told her.
Rndz was the Hunter’s lead engineer. Or was it lead mechanic? The guy responsible for anything tech related. Once the operator was done, Krndl said what to be her most used sentence ever since she had been given the slightest bit of responsibility.
“So, what’s your opinion?”
Rndz gave the data a quick glance before answering.
“There is either something interfering with the signal or the source is about to run out of power. But even if we ignore that, it’s far off from anything used within the alliance. And the direction it comes from is also far away from the secure routes, for that matter. But to my knowledge, there are no records of the Kiroscha using it either. It’s definitely a distress signal though, the sequence is too short and too repetitive to be anything else. Has our telescope found the source already?”
“Operator?” Krndl passed on the question.
“Not yet. The signal is weak, so it’s hard to pin.”
Krndl did her best to appear calm. This was exactly the situation she wanted to avoid. Was there really someone in peril? Was this a trap? What should she do?
“Is someone traversing the Bridgeway?” she finally asked the operator. If yes, that would make the decision for her.
“No, we can take a look captain. Which ships should I give the order to move?” the operator asked, clearly misunderstanding her intent.
“Um… tell the flotilla to follow us.”
“All, Ma’am?”
“Yyyyes. Yes, we, uh, can’t risk this being a trap.”
The order got relayed, and the formation changed course. They were quite a bit away from the secure route – a fact Krndl felt really nervous about – when they finally managed to catch it with their telescope. ‘It’ being about the last thing Krndl wanted to see right now.
“Th-that’s a Kiroscha raider!”
She was about to scream to her gunners to blast the damn thing into oblivion, but the moment of shock delayed her reaction which gave Rndz enough time to point out a crucial detail.
“Seems to be out of power though. Do we get an energy reading?”
“None. But it’s definitely the source of the signal,” the operator clarified, allowing Krndl to not go into full panic mode.
“Ma’am, we should try to salvage it,” Rndz requested. “It could give us invaluable insight into their tech!”
Should she listen to him? Listening to what better-qualified people said had more or less been what stopped her from making bad decisions so far. But she couldn’t help but be afraid of the little ship, despite the absolutely massive difference in firepower. With a shaking finger, she opened the channel that connected all ships.
“Surround the raider, but keep your guns pointed at it at all times! Pursuer, prepare a boarding crew.”
Affirmations from the captains of the various ships came back before each of them went into position. Slowly, the destroyer Pursuer closed in on its target.
“Keep the com channel open at all times!” she ordered as she could see the boarding tunnel steadily extend to the raider. “If at any point it looks like the Kiroscha are still alive, seal off the tunnel!”
The affirmation didn’t sound very enthusiastic. Not that she couldn’t understand them considering the order. Shortly before the tunnel reached its destination, it stopped.
“The airlock seems destroyed, Ma’am! Sending image.”
A photograph of the raider’s airlock appeared on her console. To call it broken was an understatement, it looked as if something had been connected to it and then had gotten torn off. The door behind it seemed still intact, though if it had an emergency mechanism it was probably sealed shut.
“Requesting permission to cut a new hole.”
“Permission granted.” As long as the boarding crew seemed to know what they were doing, she would simply play it safe. The Pursuer changed position and connected the tunnel to a flat surface on the side of the ship. It took a while until they managed to cut through the wall.
“No artificial gravity on board. Requesting permission to extend the Pursuer’s gravity field.”
“Permission granted.”
As the squad boarded the small ship, Krndl realized she hadn’t confirmed whether all of them were wearing space suits. They probably were, right? Anything else made no sense.
“Oxygen levels are low, but breathable. Temperature is still above the freezing point.”
“Then the Life support can’t be off for long, though it depends on how good the insulation is. Ma’am, you may want to call Doctor Mnakr as well.”
Krndl nodded and called the ship’s physician to the bridge. Shortly after, the next report came in.
“Area clear. Sending image.”
“That looks an awful lot like Vanaery tech,” Rndz commented as he saw the room through which the crew had entered.
“Interesting,” Krndl answered, unsure what else to say. The doctor joined them, and after he was quickly briefed as well, the next report came in.
“We found two dead Kiroscha. Sending image.”
The photograph showed the mangled corpses of the two insectoids, one having its entire side cave in while the other was almost bisected. While it was good that those monsters were dead, the question of what brought them to this state was one Krndl dreaded to hear the answer to. Dried purple blood was smeared not exactly where the two lay, but that was likely due to the de- and reactivation of gravity.
“Well, I guess the cause of death is quite obvious. Time of death is difficult to estimate from the picture, but they didn’t die yesterday. Assuming Rndz is right and the power hasn't been out for long yet, I’d say something between thirty to forty days ago.”
The news that they had been dead for so long was somewhat comforting. But one raider was commonly manned by five Kiroscha, and since the inside of the ship was still in somewhat livable condition, the other three could still be alive.
The boarding crew split into two teams and combed through the ship. It didn’t take long until they found two more dead Kiroscha, both having died in similar gruesome ways as the first two.
“We found the door to the bridge”, one team announced. “It’s locked, but we can cut it open.”
“Wait until the fifth Kiroscha is confirmed dead.”
The other team reported shortly after.
“We found the fifth one, also dead. And there is something else. Sending image.”
“Looks like an escape pod,” Rndz analyzed the picture. “But it isn’t any tech I’m familiar with. That could be the source of the signal.”
Did that mean whoever had been in the escape pod killed the Kiroscha? Could they be an ally then? But what kind of weaponry did they possess to produce such results?
"Team 1 requesting permission to cut open the door to the bridge," a voice from the console pulled Krndl out of her thoughts.
"Uh, yes, permission granted."
"Wait!" the other Team called out. "We found another one! Sending image!"
Krndl took a sharp breath as the next picture appeared. Why was there a sixth Kiroscha? There should've only been five!
"This one died far more recently," the doctor next to her pointed out. "May fifteen to twenty days ago."
"That explains the broken airlock," Rndz commented. "Another ship docked to see what happened, and the new crew got killed as well. Then the ships drifted apart, causing the connection point to break off."
Oh, right, that made sense. In that case...
"Look for four more corpses before we open the door."
Slowly but surely, the remaining dead Kiroscha were found, all having died roughly at the same time as the sixth. But no sign of the culprit so far. Team 1 then proceeded to cut through the locking mechanism of the door to the bridge. Thanks to some hints from Rndz - who, based on the ship's similarity to Vanaery tech, correctly assumed the weak spots - it didn't take too long.
Wait, wouldn't it have been safer to first cut out only a peephole?
"We are throu-" The voice stopped. It didn't sound like the connection had broken off, he had simply stopped talking.
"Team 1?"
No answer. Krndl started to panic.
"TEAM 1!" she called out again.
"S-sorry, Ma'am. Sending image."
"What in the world is that?"
Krndl didn't know what to say to the doctor's question as she looked at the new photograph. It showed a creature she had never seen before. It appeared to be wearing clothes - drenched in the same dark purple as the dried Kiroscha blood they had seen all over the ship - which was a hint to it being sentient, but if the doctor didn't know it, it couldn't be one of the alliance races. She herself had also never seen anything similar. The alien had light-brown skin with a blueish hue, seemingly no carapace or scales, and no fur except for a rather large, rust-colored patch on top of its head.
It also looked like it was bipedal, but Krndl wasn't completely sure about that. After all, the alien wasn't standing. It was... well, hanging, suspended from the ceiling by a cable tied around its neck.

2023.05.25 02:00 Mrmander20 [Hard Luck Hermit] - Chapter 55: All Quiet on the Stellar Front

With his mother dead and his cultist family members out to ruin his life, getting abducted by alien slavers is actually an improvement for Corey Vash. A quick and chaotic escape attempt only succeeds thanks to an unintentional rescue from the impressively skilled and infrequently sober bounty hunters aboard the Hard Luck Hermit. With no clue about how to survive in space and nothing to return to on Earth, Corey joins the crew in their efforts to make a quick buck, try new drinks, and figure out who the hell keeps trying to kill them.
[First Chapter][Previous Chapter][Cover Art][Patreon]
“Alright, sound off. Farsus, you got those disruption charges armed and ready?”
The Hard Luck Hermit always kept a few ion projectiles aboard, to disable a ship and capture the targets aboard alive when possible. The ones they had on hand were out of date and a little sluggish, making them useless against anything too fast or too modern, but Doccan ships tended to run slow and simple, making them a perfect target. Farsus gave his approval and then moved to arm the warheads and load them into the Hard Luck Hermit’s launch tubes.
“Next up, Tooley,” Kamak said. “You manage to rub two brain cells together long enough to get the docking tube back in shape?”
Tooley made exactly three rude gestures before confirming that yes, she had gotten the tube working. Another tool meant for ship-born captures, the tube could latch on to another vessel and hopefully force the hatch open. If not, Farsus also had a few shaped demolition charges that would definitely get a hatch open, along with most of the wall around it.
“Doprel, you got the restraints ready?”
“Yep,” Doprel said. There weren’t many species quite as large or as strong as Doccan’s in the galaxy, so they couldn’t use simple handcuffs. They’d jury-rigged a solution from spare cables and cords lying around the ship, and tested it on Doprel himself to be sure. It had been awkward spending an entire night trying to tie up Doprel, but it had paid off and they’d all sworn never to talk about it again.
“Corvash, Po Lo-”
“To Vo.”
“Whatever. You got your guns ready?”
“Yes sir. Though absent any time in the firing range, I can’t say with complete confidence-”
“Noted. Corvash, you?”
“It’s a gun. I point, I shoot.”
“Good man. You keep pointing and shooting until whatever you’re shooting is no longer moving,” Kamak said. “After all the fights you’ve seen Doprel in, I don’t need to remind you Doccan are tough motherfuckers, especially compared to species like us. Do not let up, even if you see them ‘bleeding’. They’ve got a subdermal layer of shock-absorbing fluid, so if you see them leaking, it doesn’t mean they’re dying, it means they’re pissed off.”
Kamak pointed at Doprel. He wasn’t fully comfortable being an example, but he put up with it for the sake of demonstration. Corey re-examined his gun again. There’d always been a mix of exotic armaments like plasma and laser weaponry aboard the Hermit, with a few ballistic rifles like back home on Earth in the mix for special occasions, but today they all had good old fashioned slugthrowers. Apparently the Doccan could shrug off laser weaponry especially well, since the self-cauterizing nature of energy weapons worked against itself when creatures with an internal fluid barrier were involved.
“Do not aim for the center of mass. You’ll be here all day, or you will be if a Doccan doesn’t grab you and eat you alive first,” Kamak said. “Aim for the head and the extremities, with special focus on the arms. Legs are good, but tougher to get through. Lot of density in those stumpy stompers.”
Corey had mostly lost interest in the lecture, but To Vo appeared to be taking furious mental notes, as if she planned to make a career out of killing Doccan. She put that energy into even the most tedious tasks, however. A few swaps ago she’d typed out several pages of notes while Corey explained how to change a water filter.
“Track the target I call, focus your fire, and remember that we need to leave at least one alive,” Kamak continued. “Any questions from the squad?”
To Vo immediately raised her hand. Kamak sighed, but gave her the all-clear. Life or death situations were not the time to leave any unanswered questions, even stupid unanswered questions.
“Sir, in the event that we’re engaged in close range, what do-”
“You cover your face and hope to gods Doprel gets to you before the Doccan rips you in half or eats a part of you you can’t live without,” Kamak said. “If you get close enough to the face, you might be able to punch them in something sensitive and buy yourself two seconds before one of the aforementioned possibilities happens.”
“Oh dear.”
“It’s a long tube. If they start getting close, back up.”
Kamak gave his gun a firm pat on the barrel, to emphasize the importance of heavy weaponry, and then turned back to Farsus.
“That about cover it?”
“Our tactical situation is sound,” Farsus said. “Doccan are known for efficiency, not cleverness.”
“Alrighty then, everyone ready and loaded?”
One by one, the armed crew sounded off, and Kamak shouted to their only crew member who wasn’t holding a gun.
“Tooley, we’re good to go. Load up the ‘distressed traveler’ ping.”
“Can do, captain,” Tooley shouted back. She flipped a switch and loaded up one of the ship’s false-flag identification beacons. Being able to lie about what kind of ship they were was very illegal, but very useful. It helped them slip through Bang Gate security without attracting attention and today, it would help them draw in their prey. Tooley flipped another switch and started broadcasting a distress signal as well. They had recruited To Vo La Su and her naturally squeaky, pitiful voice to mimic the high pitched whining of a lost traveler whose ship had been damaged in the Bang Gate explosion. The Doccan were not overtly aggressive most of the time, but when a vulnerable target presented itself, they seized on the easy resources.
“Ready to charge headlong into enemy territory on your mark, Kamak,” Tooley said. She wasn’t even a frontline fighter in this plan and she still didn’t like it.
“Get it moving, Tools,” Kamak ordered. “We know what we’re doing.”
Mostly, Tooley thought to herself. Mostly. She slid the accelerator forward and started them careening toward the decrepit space station the Doccan had occupied. She even jiggled the controls intermittently to really give the ship that “unsteady due to heavy damage” look. After a few jiggles, she decided to code it into the ship’s autopilot so she didn’t have to do it manually. Their quest might take a while.
As was often the case, waiting proved the hardest part. Corey kept his gun close to his chest and occasionally tapped his finger against the metal shell. To Vo mirrored his nervous habit for a time, but found it did nothing to ease her own nerves.
“Is it always this...quiet?”
“Usually,” Kamak noted. “That’s the thing about any fight you plan in advance. Bullets move so damn fast you usually spend more time thinking about the fight than actually fighting it.”
“And is that supposed to include all the ways you could die?”
“Yes,” Farsus said. “I find thinking of jaunty showtunes helps.”
“I am the very model of a modern Major-General, I’ve information vegetable animal and mineral,” Corey sang. While intended to amuse, everyone else in the hallway looked at him like he’d grown a second head. “What? We were talking about music.”
“Singing doesn’t translate well,” Kamak said. The translator chips they all had could do wonders for detecting sarcasm and other vocal cues, but there was no possible way to match the rhythm and rhymes of even a short song with the varied syllables of several alien languages. Corey’s brief song had sounded like absolute gibberish to everyone who listened.
“Right. My bad.”
“You killed a few seconds, at least,” Kamak said. “Maybe not the way you wanted to, but still.”
“Glad to be of service,” Corey said, with a mock salute. After his hand returned to his side, silence reigned in the room again. It lasted a few minutes before Farsus decided to kill it himself.
“On the subject of translation errors,” Farsus said. “Shall we play a game of Follow Up?”
“Follow Up?”
“Someone says a word, then the next person has to say a word that starts with the last letter of that word,” Kamak grunted. “And so on and so forth.”
“I, for example, would say ‘armature’, and Kamak would then say-”
The silence returned for a moment before Kamak sighed and relented to peer pressure.
“And then Doprel might say-”
“What are you even doing? None of these words are related at all, even by letter.”
“Not as you’re hearing them,” Farsus said. “As I said, the limitations of our translators play a large part.”
“Well then I could just say any given word, and you’d have no way of knowing if I was bullshitting or not.”
“To do so would be to betray the spirit of the game, Corvash,” Farsus said. “Think of it as a thought exercise as much as a game. View and analyze phonetic differences between languages.”
“And as another upside, the longer you play this game, the less you’ll mind if the Doccan kill you,” Kamak said. Farsus’s “games” always eroded his will to live.
Any further discussion of time-killing came to an end when Tooley dimmed the lights in the hallway.
“Eyes up, boys and pig,” Tooley said. “We’ve got inbound.”
“Confirmed it’s someone we want to kill, and not someone trying to help us?”
“Believe me, Kamak, this ship can only be a Doccan retrofit,” Tooley said. “This thing’s -fucking fires, this ship is older than your grandma, Kamak. Watch your fire, kids, a stray bullet could knock this thing to pieces.”
“Don’t worry too much, the Doccan love to build them sturdy,” Kamak said. While the Doccan mostly stole ships from other species, the oldest and frailest of their vessels were still durable, thanks to the Doccan tendency to spot weld and reinforce as much as physically possible.
“Good news about the ship being so damn old is it’s big and slow,” Tooley said. “Permission to fire, Kam?”
“Weapons free, Tooley, shut them down.”
Tooley chuckled to herself and manned the torpedo’s. She always loved getting to fire the weapons, especially at hard-to-miss targets. Her aim wasn’t very good.
Even Tooley’s pathetically inaccurate aim could still hit a target the size of an office building and moving only slightly faster. The disruption charges hit the target and bathed it in ionizing energy, shutting down the Doccan’s jury-rigged electronics. Tooley waited for a moment, to make sure the ship was truly dead in the water, before pulling them in close.
“Looks all clear, folks,” Tooley said. “No way to read life signs through that thick-ass hull so you’re going in blind.”
“Assume at least four,” Doprel said, holding up a four-fingered hand. “They like to base things around four.”
“Noted. Stay quiet through the sealing procedure. Airlocks are tricky.”
Kamak held up his hand, and the boarding crew stayed silent. The harsh sound of long-motionless mechanical gears grinding to life filled the corridor. Corey grabbed the wall as the ship started to shift and pivot towards the ship they would soon be attached to. The ship’s personal gravity kept him firmly adhered to the floor no matter how they moved, but he still got an odd sense of vertigo whenever they did complex maneuvers like this.
“Contact made, system link established, airlock ready to open on your mark, Kamak,” Tooley said. “Huh. That’s several complete sentences without insulting you. Give the order, Captain Whiskey Dick.”
“Thanks, Tools. Open the door and then go clean out that empty space between your ears.”
The insult went unacknowledged, but the door did start to open. Kamak shouldered his gun, the rest followed suit, and they held their ground, guns raised, as the hatches started to open. A rush of cold air surged out of the Doccan ship as the hatch hissed open. Apparently they skimped on the climate controls. Kamak let the rush of cold air wash over him, sending a cold shiver down a tense spine. Eyes and guns stayed locked on the opening until arms started to get sore.
“Nothing,” Kamak said.
“Perhaps they don’t realize they’ve been docked,” Farsus said. “Their systems are both outdated and under duress thanks to our disabler. It’s possible they have no auxiliary power.”
“So maybe they’re not expecting us,” Kamak said.
“Or maybe they’re waiting just on the other side of the airlock,” Corey said.
“I was just about to say that,” Kamak said. “But more sarcastically, of course. Only one way to find out which is which. Doprel, this is a polite request-”
“I’m on it, captain,” Doprel said. He was about to volunteer anyway. The Doccan would try to kill anyone who boarded on sight, but Doprel was still the most resilient, even if it was his own equally-resilient people trying to kill him. He stepped forward, gun still in hand, until he reached the end of the tunnel. He put his finger a little closer to the trigger as he took his final step out of the boarding tube and into the ship.
“So far so good, I- oh!”
Doprel was pulled to the side by an unseen force, falling out of view. Kamak was the first one to sprint through the docking tube after him, gun raised.
“No contact!” Doprel shouted. “No contact! I’m fine, I just-”
Kamak found out exactly why Doprel had fallen very soon -and very fast. His dead sprint down the hall took him through the opening, and then through the air, at high speeds, before he bounced off a wall and started drifting down the hallway.
“Motherfucker,” Kamak grunted. He grabbed on to a loose section of piping in the ship’s hallway and tried to hold himself in place. “They don’t even have the gravity turned on?”
“Is this a problem, sir?”
To Vo stepped through the doorway and manged to begin floating much more gracefully than the first two.
“Hey, Miss Lady Cop, could you remind me what the first Kinetic Absolute is?”
“Of course sir! The first Kinetic Absolute is that any two entities which exert force on each other will exert force of equal measure...on...opposite vectors.”
To Vo looked down at her gun. That was a hell of a lot of exerting force, and the empty air of the space ship made for a lot of possible opposite vectors.
“I see the problem.”
